THE COST OF NOT STAYING IN HIGH FUNCTIONING AND POWER
IT'S TOO HIGH OF A COST TO ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN
(This is written partially for myself, not to try for any kind of perfect life but also to remind myself what the cost is of going into low functioning - and what the great pity and waste of it all! I aim to use this to help assure that I am fully living life - and this comes first, for how else can one fully live life?!!!)
When I let myself go into lower functioning, by being a bit lax here and there or entirely careless, I end up feeling like a blob, not feeling good about myself. I kind of go into a state of stupor that is no way to live - and it is certainly not aliveness!
I miss out on so much, all for an easy disobeying of what I know to be right!
This is no way to live my life! In fact, it is not even living life! What a waste!
I cannot afford to do this. I must stick by the rules that keep me in my high functioning.
Wouldn't I rather live with the energy of a Tony Robbins?!!! (Though my "mind" comes up with "How the heck can I do that? How about a little break here?" But, of course, I will take care of myself and not be a constant "on" version of Tony Robbins.)
Unless I am in a perilous state of being, I have energy and need not perpetuate any holding of myself in a safe, low energy operating mode, in some great illusion. I can do the Yes! I can create that energy. Or, if I am truly in need of something, I can take a 21 minute nap - and then get up and do the Yes!
I absolutely refuse to violate my highest value of truly living life.
I absolutely refuse to settle for not staying in high functioning and power.
I absolutely refuse to violate the rules that cause me to stay in high functioning and power.
From this day henceforth, I promise myself that I will follow the rules, not accepting deviations casually, so that I am a truly high functioning person, living in my highest state of resourcefulness, able to harvest life fully!
It is my distinct pleasure to do this.
And this is my absolute commitment.
